How come you always show a picture of Madame La Farge ... I mean Mrs. Vince McMahon for the campaign notebook musings ?? There are lots of other public servents running for re-election who are far more worthy a face recognition help from "The Patch". And Gale and Toni are good looking women. Bill B is a handsome fatherly figure and even retiring Senator Lieberman would add to your pages more then La Linda. Or is Patch just one of her campaign tools ? Along with the weekly robo calls she pounds us all with ....

@Um - I heard WWF CEO Vince Mcmahon bought the Patch for her for as a Christmas present when she was running a few years ago. The gift that keeps on giving ! No wonder they give her such good press - her guys write it and print it - saves on overhead too. No need to bother with those pesky union issues either. Linda for Queen !!
